The scientific programming for IUFRO Congresses is developed in a collaborative manner: participants are invited to submit proposals for sessions, and those chosen will comprise part of the programming.
Once the sessions are selected, participants are invited to submit papers and posters from October to December 15.
The plenary sessions are defined by the Scientific Committee, the IUFRO Board, and the organizing committee.
The technical excursions are selected to include a diverse range of site visits and research underway at these locations, and also take into account the Congress’s 5 themes and distance from the event.
